A lot of people quote Einstein’s definition of insanity but that’s because it’s true :” Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”
If that’s the case, then we are all certifiable now. We’ve had almost 100 years of Impaired Driving Legislation (1921) and yet we keep letting people drink and drive, campaigns keep telling us that it’s wrong to drink and drive, the Police keep arresting people (often multiple times) for driving drunk, the Firefighters, EMS, Doctors, Nurses keep putting victims of drunk drivers back together, if they even can, the Coroners keep doing autopsies on the victims and the Courts keep…….and the Politicians argue what to do.
Next year I will probably write this exact same blog. And I am fully prepared that next year I will be taking the shoes to Ottawa again.
And yet, every year the numbers go up. Why???
Perhaps it’s time to do something – anything- different.
Why do I get the sinking feeling that I am going to be much older and much greyer before the insanity ends?
